Wii U Release Date: Latest Info on Nintendo's Next Generation Gaming System

Video game giant Nintendo has revealed some of the details of its next generation platform system, the Wii U at this year’s E3 conference.

The gaming company plans to follow up its highly successful Nintendo Wii system by sticking to some of the same principals which made them do well on the last outing.

The Wii U is not exactly a console but rather an upgraded Wii that is fused with a tablet, or a controller with a screen that works with Nintendo’s upcoming Wii 2 or Wii U system.

One of the benefits of Wii U is the ability to change the channel on the TV and continue to play a game on the device’s six-inch screen.

Wii U also works in tandem with Wii games, allowing players to use the Wii-Mote as a golf stick while the new device acts as a tee to hit the ball off of.

Another exciting feature on the Wii U is the ability to turn off the television and still play a game since a player can stream it directly to the device.

Unlike Nintendo DS, the Wii U cannot be used as a portable gaming device.

The Wii U controller sports two analogs, triggers on the back of the pad, a digital pad, a six-inch screen and motion controls.

This device has been designed to take the Wii experience to the next level and Nintendo is advertising it to those looking to stay in shape on its new promo video.

The Wii U seems to stand out from the competition just like the original Nintendo Wii did.

While companies such as Sony and Microsoft were turning their systems into mini PC’s, Nintendo focused on implementing physical movement into gaming and hit a home run with the original Nintendo Wii.

The company is hoping for lighting to strike twice with a similar strategy for Nintendo Wii U.
